you're invited

I spent most of my three day weekend organizing the addresses for our wedding (invites will go out soon). Basically I had to figure out what would go on both the inner and the outer envelopes of the wedding invitations. To get a feel for the numbers, check out this shoe box that we used to hold our addressed save the date cards.

Most of the weekend was spent with this book propped open on my lap in front of the computer - The Crane Blue Book of Stationary (online version available at crane.com). It is by far the most useful book when trying to figure out how to address envelopes to wedding guests. It is the absolute best book for that kind of thing - blows Emily Post's wedding etiquette book out of the water when it comes to stationary. Seriously.

  1. Better than Emily Post?! My dad used to pull her out whenever we had bad manners while eating. He conveniently ignored the rule of not reading at the dinner table.

    But coming from a family of calligraphers, I definitely appreciate the complexity of addressing!
